The best and worst cities to live in 2021 bei Internations

InterNations, the world’s largest expat community with more than 3.5 million members, publishes its Expat City Ranking, which reveals the best and worst cities to live in 2021. Overall, 66 cities make it into this year’s Expat City Ranking 2020. Five of the top 10 cities are located on the Iberian Peninsula — with Valencia (1st), Alicante (2nd), and Lisbon (3rd) at the very top, followed by Málaga (6th) and Madrid (9th). Survey respondents in Valencia — the best city for expats in 2020 — are particularly happy with local healthcare and the local climate. The Expat City Ranking is based on the annual Expat Insider survey by InterNations, which is one of the most extensive surveys about living and working abroad, with more than 15,000 respondents in 2020. This year, 66 cities around the globe are analyzed in the survey, which offers in-depth information about five areas of expat life: Quality of Urban Living, Getting Settled, Urban Work Life, Finance & Housing, and Local Cost of Living. Together, the first four topics make up the Expat City Ranking, which reveals the best and worst cities for expats to live in. As the data was collected in March 2020, just before COVID-19 turned into a global pandemic, one question, however, remains: Will these cities still come out on top in a post-COVID world?
